SkyOS SkyOS has gotten a new virtual filesystem, dubbed BranchFS. This makes it possible to branch filesystems, convert read-only media into read-write media, and add SkyFS attributes to non-SkyFS volumes. "BranchFS makes it possible to make a reversible filesystem. By using your system partition you can revert to a previous state (with just one reboot) and and when using a CD BranchFS makes it possible to make changes to the content. BranchFS is still in heavy development but branching a LiveCD works quite well already. The first SkyOS LiveCD will be based on BranchFS."

"What is so wrong with not being open sourced?"

Nothing is wrong with it not being open sourced. That's just a "saying" these days. "Wow, the only thing that could make that better is to 'Open Source' it!"

I am going to start using that phrase for everything. "Gee honey! This was the best meal ever. The only thing that could make it better is if you open source it!"
